How long have you worked at HPC?  

I’ve been with HPC for two months.

How did you get into your field of work?

I decided that I wanted to be a nurse when I went on a field trip in kindergarten. I continued that path with my high school and college choices.

Do you speak any other languages? If yes, which ones?

Yes, my Spanish is coming back to me.

Do you have a favorite quote? If yes, what is it?

“Be weird, be you.” -Jocelyn Carlisle (my daughter)

What values are important to you?

Honesty is so important to me. Honesty is who you are, what you say and all you do.

What is something about you that would surprise people?

If I wasn’t a nurse, I think I would work in a bakery or be a gardener. These are two things I enjoy but don’t have time for.

What is on your “bucket” list?

Hannah Carlisle and familySomeday I will take a vacation with just my husband. We have been married for 21 years and never took a honeymoon.

I love a lot of foods, so I guess I’ll say my favorite comfort food is biscuits and gravy.

“Pearl Harbor” or “The Notebook”

What is your favorite hobby?

The past 19 years, my favorite “hobby” has been doing whatever the kids want, but I do love getting time to kayak or sew.

Are you an animal lover?  If yes, how many pets do you have and what kind are they?

I do love animals! We have two dogs, a cat, and are taking care of our son’s bearded dragon while he is at college. Through the years we have had guinea pigs, hedgehog, hermit crabs, turtles, gecko and even a crawdad once.
